Veggie Tacos

 

Veggie Tacos | Vegan Living by Danielle

Ingredients:

  • taco shells
  • 1 can of beans (your choice of kidney, black, or pinto)
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa
  • handful of spinach
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper (optional if you like the spice!)

Topping Suggestions:

  • guacamole or avocado (to balance the spice and replace the cheese)
  • shredded lettuce
  • chopped tomatoes
  • black olives
  • extra salsa
  • Tofutti sour cream (optional if you don’t like avocado or aren’t worried about the extra calories)

Directions:

  1. Warm a frying pan over medium heat and preheat oven to cook your taco shells according to the package.
  2. Drain the can of beans and pour into pan with salsa.
  3. Cook stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes to cook the beans.
  4. Throw in your spinach (it doesn’t add too much taste, but adds great superfood nutrients!!) and add the spices.
  5. Lower the burner to low-medium heat and cover to wilt the spinach, stirring occasionally. Now is normally a good time to throw the taco shells in the oven, but double check against the package!
  6.  Once the spinach is wilted, serve your filling in the taco shell and top with your choice of ingredients from the topping list!

Enjoy!

Vegan Pro Tip: Use taco fillings that are left over as topping for a taco salad for lunch or dinner the next day!
